Akuomaru Genshin Impact: Stats, Materials, Character Recommendations
Are you ready to strengthen your DPS characters in Genshin Impact? Look no further than Akuomaru, a fantastic 4-star Claymore weapon from the Watatsumi series. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the details of Akuomaru, including its stats, ascension materials, and the best characters to wield this mighty weapon.
Stats and Abilities:
Akuomaru boasts impressive stats that make it an ideal choice for DPS characters. With its main stat providing additional ATK and the secondary stat granting ATK%, Akuomaru can significantly boost your damage output. Starting with 42 additional ATK at level 1, it can reach a whopping 510 at level 90. Moreover, the ATK% increases from 9% at level 1 to 41.3% at level 90, ensuring your attacks pack a punch.
One of the standout features of Akuomaru is its unique ability called Watatsumi Wavewalker. This bonus enhances the Elemental Burst damage of the character wielding the weapon. At refinement 1, each point of the entire party’s combined maximum Energy capacity increases the Elemental Burst DMG by 0.12%. With max refinement (R5), this effect doubles to 0.24%. Imagine the devastation you can unleash with up to 80% Elemental Burst DMG increase!
To ascend Akuomaru and unlock its true potential, you’ll need specific materials. These include Drops of Nobushi’s enemies (Old Handguard, Kageuchi Handguard, and Famed Handguard), Branch of a Distant Sea’s ascension materials (Coral Branch of a Distant Sea, Jeweled Branch of a Distant Sea, Jade Branch of a Distant Sea, and Golden Branch of a Distant Sea), and drops from Elite Enemy Riftwolves (Concealed Claw, Concealed Unguis, and Concealed Talon).
Riftwolves, found on the enchanting island of Enkanomiya in Inazuma, offer these precious materials. Watch out for Rockfond Rifthound, Rockfond Rifthound Whelp, Thundercraven Rifthound, and Thundercraven Rifthound Whelp. Defeating them will yield the necessary resources for ascending Akuomaru.
Akuomaru is a dream come true for Burst DPS builds. Its high base ATK and ATK% bonuses make it a superb choice for characters with impressive Elemental Burst damage scaling. Based on the findings of VCGamers, several characters are particularly well-suited to wield Akuomaru:
- Diluc: Unleash the power of Pyro with Diluc’s fiery Elemental Burst.
- Chongyun: Combine Cryo abilities with Akuomaru to freeze your enemies in their tracks.
- Eula: Amplify Eula’s Cryo-infused strikes with the devastating effects of Akuomaru.
- Razor: Enhance Razor’s Electro-powered assaults to tear through enemies like lightning.
- Dehya: Maximize Dehya’s Elemental Burst damage with the incredible boost from Akuomaru.
While these characters are highly recommended, don’t overlook other potential options. Characters like Kaveh, Xinyan, and Beidou, who excel in Elemental Burst damage, can also wield Akuomaru to great effect.
